My careers in the entertainment and music-journalism worlds have afforded many wonderful (and educational) experiences.
Me on stage...
For GUITAR PLAYER's Beatles Special in 2004, we released five different cover designs, making Ringo Starr the first drummer ever given his own GP cover. Finally, in 2015, I got to show it to him.
Les Paul was a great friend to GUITAR PLAYER and to me personally. His counsel and his fantastic stories were always welcome. Here, I'm wishing him well at his 90th birthday party in NYC.
I talked to Cliff Williams (left) and Angus Young in NYC about how the band was moving forward without Angus' brother Malcolm, who had succumbed to dementia.
Creating GUITAR PLAYER's "Certified Legend Award" was quite a thrill for me. Here, I'm presenting the honor to guitarist Lita Ford, along with her Runaways band mate Cherie Currie.
